Abstract

In recent years, video sequence with a depth map can be taken by a camera with RGB-D (depth) sensor like Kinect. On the other hand, quality degradation at occluded regions is inevitable when conventional 2-D video coding is applied. In this paper, we propose usage of an occluded region detection supported by the depth map for improvement of 2-D image coding quality. Experiments show that further improvement of picture quality at the whole of frame and occluded regions is addressed for H.265/HEVC compressed streams.
